MV Agusta’s all-new F3 675 opens up a market to the elite MV Agusta by entering the middleweight class. The sportbike category includes the supersports from Japan’s Big but the F3 uses the 675cc, three-cylinder pioneered by Triumph and its Daytona 675 of four-cylinder engines like the Our Euro correspondent took it for hot laps at the Paul Ricard in the South of France.

In its segment the inline-Four 600s where a horse is considered big news, the MV F3 carries superb punch The F3 675 is claimed to deliver 126 hp at 14.400 In terms of raw technical specifications, the F3 is close to the Triumph Daytona which is the other Triple in the

But the F3 carries a lot more electronics this decade, including control and full ride-by-wire control.

The chicane after the straight is taken at around 30 mph and is by heavy acceleration toward a but technical right-left-right where the is banked and blind. This which is actually on the Mistral was there on this day to avoid icy but I really enjoyed riding the F3 on part of the circuit. After it was full throttle through to gear or even sixth speeds of more than 150

The final right out onto the straight ends in a high-speed where I experienced lots of the traction control handled, the throttle to be pinned.

The F3’s ergonomics are much humane than its bigger the F4. There is more space for the and you sit more in the motorcycle than on top of it. is because of the new frame architecture mixed aluminium plates and the upper part, which the MV engineers to make the F3 much and lower just around the area which provides a comfy riding position.

All and foot controls fit my frame fine, both when in and out of pit lane and riding fast on the

I know a bike’s appearance is but my eyes see a very beautiful that doesn’t look like anything you’d budget. Still that’s it is; the F3 is a budget motorcycle, Italian At $13,498, the F3 will be a mouth-watering to anybody looking for the ultimate supersport. Its several notches the Big Four in terms of desirability, and its competitors are the Triumph Daytona 675 and 848.

The Daytona starts at $10,999 and to $12,699 for the Ohlins-equipped 675R The base Ducati lists than the MV at $13,995, but the Corse SE (with traction-control, quick-shifter and shock) lists for $14,995.

Out on the again I’m enjoying the sound of the Triple spinning up effortlessly its counter-rotating crankshaft. I could for a little more oomph down in the rev-range but it doesn’t me much as it’s only in two on the circuit this acts as a The acceleration above 10K rpm is strong. I up into second a couple of in the two hairpin corners, and it didn’t for me.

First gear it was, and the response isn’t ideal in situation. This was never a in the higher gears so there’s for adjustment in first gear the ratio is slightly off for Paul

The F3 was thoroughly enjoyable to feed in the via the quick shifter from to third and up, and the acceleration is more satisfactory, particularly in the lower gears. Again the sound is and despite the fact the F3 isn’t a racing bike, it sure sound like one! come easy by just the throttle, but the final version be available with anti-wheelie for that are insecure about antics or need it for racing.

The Marzocchi front suspension and the rear shock is by now a trademark MV feature, and I’m impressed with the of the front end when hard on the radial brakes. Thankfully, had brought along some sticky tires for us in the Diablo One could argue that on a where the ambient temperature reached higher than 50 Fahrenheit the SC2 (medium) compound never be warm enough to full effect in the grip

This may be true, but Paul surface is among the best can buy. In the world of supersport same goes for the Diablo Combine these two and you get a combination despite the cold, provided of grip.

This didn’t stop the from sliding its way through corners, but the chassis of the F3 is so good it’s only fun and games so.
